Raspberry Cream Cheese Bars

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2012
This recipe was a great starting point for an awesome dessert. I added a tablespoon of cinnamon to the oat mixture, subbed a can of cherry pie filling for the raspberry preserves, added a few tablespoons of lemon juice to cut the sweetness of the cheese filling, and ran 1/2 cup of pecans through the food processor in place of the almonds. They have absolutely evaporated within 24 hours. Next time I may play with the sugar ratios and use 16 oz of cream cheese, but there were no complaints!

Boiled Bagels

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2011
A great recipe for a bagel novice like me. Subbed mostly bread flour for a chewier bagel, and was not disappointed. Rather than form balls and poke them, I squeezed dough portions into snakes, moistened each end, and pinched together to form each bagel. Also followed other reviewers' advice and made 8 larger bagels, used molasses, not white sugar (as directed), for the boiling step. Baked at 400 degrees F for 10 minutes or so, then lowered the heat to 350 to finish for a darker, golden exterior. Next time (and there will be many!), will press sesame seeds -or other toppings- into dough after boiling (most fell off while slicing, as they were just sprinkled on), and try broiling option. P.S.- One bagel from this first attempt was impregnated with chocolate chips (fully sealed in dough) by the kiddo, and that was delightful!

All-Around Good Smoothie

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2010
This is a good starting point for smoothie novices. I've discovered that I LOVE this variation: nix the protein powder, add a splash of vanilla extract, 1/2 cup of blueberries (frozen berries work great!), and a packet of plain instant oatmeal instead of the flax. Delicious, filling and really packs in my much-needed fruit servings!

BBQ Pork for Sandwiches

Reviewed: Sep. 14, 2009
This has become a weekly staple in my home-- with a few modifications. :) Used 1+ cups chicken stock and 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar instead of beef broth, dusted all with garlic powder and cumin before covering, cooking for 6-8 hours. Used less than a cup of our favorite BBQ sauce (from Shane's Rib Shack!) after shredding, served on Texas toast. A keeper!

Six Can Chicken Tortilla Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 14, 2009
So easy, delicious, and easily modified to our tastes-- added cumin and oregano, rinsed the beans to cut down on the murkiness of the soup, used frozen corn instead of canned. A great starting point!

French Silk Chocolate Pie I

Reviewed: Sep. 14, 2009
Followed the recipe as written, and it tasted great, despite being a bit dense. (Should have read the reviews first!) Next time, I will follow the advice to whip the egg whites seperately before folding into the chocolate mixture-- will certainly do the trick!

Chuck's Favorite Mac and Cheese

Reviewed: Aug. 20, 2009
I followed this recipe as written (though I tend to "eyeball" quite a bit), with the exception of subbing crushed croutons for the bread crumb and butter on top. (Which will henceforth be how we have it-- SO good!) This will be "my" mac and cheese from now on. :) Thank you for a great recipe!

Brooke's Best Bombshell Brownies

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2009
I've tried making brownies from scratch before, and they always fall short, but these were darn good on my first try. I followed this recipe as written, with two simple changes, as suggested by other reviewers: I cut the sugar to 2 cups (half white and half brown), and I used milk chocolate chips. I had only baked them for 25-30 minutes when they tested done, and next time I plan to underbake them even more-- I like a moister, gooey brownie. Overall, a GREAT recipe.
